Frozen Lime Vacation Bars




1 sleeve Saltine crackers, crushed (I used a baggie and some aggression)

½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted

2 Tbsp brown sugar


1 can sweetened condensed milk

Zest of 1 lime

½ cup lime juice

6 egg yolks

¼ cup tequilla

3 Tbsp Grand Marnier


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Line an 8x8 or 9x9 pan with parchment paper (I used aluminum foil – make do with what’s on hand.)

In a mixing bowl combine crust ingredients.

Press into prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.

Cool the crust while you make the filling

In a large mixing bowl (or the one you just used rinsed and dried) combine ingredients for the filling, stirring well to incorporate eggs with condensed milk.

Pour into cooled crust and bake another 15 to 20 minutes – it will still be a little jiggly in the center.

Freeze at least 2 hours, cut into squares and serve!
